Thomas Markle Reveals How He Found Out About Meghan Markle's Pregnancy

Duchess Meghan Markle‘s father, Thomas Markle, has revealed how he found out about the royal pregnancy news and also spoke about where he was when he found out – crossing the US/Mexico border.

“I was sitting in line waiting to cross the border when I heard the baby announcement on the car radio. The first thing I thought about was holding Meghan in my arms as a newborn 37 years ago. I thought, ‘My baby is having a baby.’ It was a very proud moment,” Thomas told The Mail on Sunday.

“I was filled with love, joy and happiness for both my beautiful daughter and my son-in-law. A new baby is a blessing and I look forward to seeing a little Meghan or a little Harry,” he continued.

Thomas added, “I wasn’t surprised by the baby announcement. Meghan loves children and she and Harry have been talking about wanting a family from the start. I’m delighted for them both. She’s always been wonderful with children and most of her friends have families so she’s used to being around kids. She will make a fantastic mother.”

Thomas has spoken extensively to the press about his daughter (in one memorable interview, he exclaimed that she looked terrified in her new role in the spotlight.) Thomas famously missed the royal wedding after he suffered a heart attack.

    Ridiculous. How about no comment. You could have had a relationship with your daughter if you maintained privacy. #dummy
